he's yours, God!

Yesterday Dan & I had Jaxon "dedicated" .......a commitment that we made as parents to raise Jaxon in a way that would honor God, and also "letting" Jaxon go for the purposes God has for his life (when that time comes!). I'm guessing that this is something that we're going to have to do on a regular basis...mentally giving Jaxon back over to God. As a parent it's so easy to constantly be worrying about one thing or another, and there's always the temptation to hold him close and protect him and keep him under our arms of protection. But as we know....our "arms of protection" are not even CLOSE as strong as God's arms of protection.

We were blessed to have both of our parents come for the weekend, and Dan's sister Ange. It was a full house but a good time. Jaxon enjoyed being doted over for all his waking hours. Although he seems to be enjoying playing on the floor again today ;). He didn't see much of the floor this weekend! :)

Here's some pictures of the weekend.

fun with nana

Grandpa & Grandma

This is crazy. Bill (a guy from our church) can hold Jaxon by his feet in the palm of his hand. Jaxon just stands straight up, balancing. It's amazing. Bill says that every baby can do it.

all-you-can-eat brunch after church! Boy was it good!

...and of course after every big meal, sleep in inevitable!

Mmmmmmm.....homemade buns for supper!

I know how to pick 'em! :)

How many grandparents does it take to get Jaxon in his Jolly Jumper?


  1. I sooo enjoyed looking at all the pictures and reading about Jaxon's baby dedication weekend! It was neat to see the pictures in your church too to get a small idea of what it looks like :) I didn't know babies can stand in the palm of your hand and balance upright on their own! Wow! We'll have to try that with our next baby - Tae is too big now to try it with him :) You guys are great parents and Jax is a very blessed little guy to be able to have you as his parents. Love you three!

  2. Looks like you had a great time with your families!!!Cant wait to see you guys this summer!!!Love you three!
